There will be a short presentation about the local history of Victoria Park which will be followed by a talk about how local groups can work together on how to save memories for now and the future.

Update on the Broomhill Avenue Greenspace…

Unfortunately, despite having a temporary reprieve in January this year, the Greenspace is once again under threat and a new petition has been set up to fight this latest development.

Glasgow City Council have again been approached with a proposal to have the land declared surplus and sold for development of flats. The local councillors have been asked to comment on this proposal. The likely outcome of this part of the process is unclear. The more signatures we have on the petition, the stronger the case against that proposal will be, and the more pressure we can place on the City Council to listen to the community, and save the Greenspace for the third, and hopefully final, time.

The Friends of Broomhill Avenue Greenspace are also organising a volunteer event at 1pm on Sunday 26 March to prepare the ground for sowing the seeds for a long strip of wildflowers on the south border of the Greenspace. And they need volunteers to help with digging/turning over soil and removing stones etc. We have some spades and forks but bringing your own would be helpful. Under 16’s need to bring a responsible adult.

Four brave members of the Dumbarton Road Corridor Environment Trust (DRCET) and De’ils On Wheels team will Brave the Shave by getting their heads shaved to raise funds for DRCET and the Beatson Cancer Charity.

Neil, Liz, Paul and Sarah (listed by amounts of current hair!) will be going under the clippers on Thursday 30 March 2017 to raise funds for these two great Glasgow based charities.

Any support you are able to give would be very much appreciated. You can sponsor us online at…
